The Mister Sister Mobile Health Service takes health care to rural communities with limited access. The objective is to develop a sustainable system for communities to access primary healthcare. In the long run Mister Sister services are envisioned to operate on a self-sufficient basis, however at present are reliant on public and private donations. Current partners include: USAID, Pharmaccess, Heineken Africa Foundation, Namibia Agricultural Association, Ministry of Health and Social Service (MOHSS), Namibia Institute of Pathology (NIP), NABCOA, Dutch Health Insurance Fund, Namibia Medical Care (NMC), Namibia Breweries Limited and Ohlthaver & List group. For a six month long trial period (July 2011 – January 2012), USAID agreed to fund Mister Sister services for all orphans and vulnerable children along its routes. Presently the trial period is being evaluated and Mister Sister services are supported through another USAID project, Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS). Physical infrastructure to the project has been provided in kind by the Ohlthaver and List group, Heineken Africa Foundation and Namibia Medical Care.
